Vancool shakes the indie-rock scene with new single ‘I’ll Follow You’

Indie Perth band, Vancool, deliver a gorgeously fuzzy rock tune, I’ll Follow You, dripping with the nostalgia of a 90’s love-song.

“All dressed up, nowhere to go”, Vancool’s lyrics swirl in electrically oozing clouds with their new single I’ll Follow You

The track was released last week after a string of sold out shows for the Perth group, showcasing a sharper, more-refined, and exciting new direction for Vancool’s sound.


Frontman, Dion Mariani created the band after his involvement with local Perth groups; The Flairz, Custom Royal and Ray Finkle.

I’ll Follow You magnifies Mariani’s vocal experience in multi-genre groups to create a blended mix of rock with a nostalgically indie sound.

The single kicks off with Mariani’s dreamy old school vocals, pulling you into a grungy teenage love soundscape.

With an acoustic guitar that strums a golden treasure tune, and drums that slam a 90’s edge beat, Vancool have managed to pull together a glistening rock track that will transcend any musical preference.

As the tune progresses, Vancool shows off their electrically harnessed skills, a flawless blend of sounds with a chorus that ripples you into a tightly packed mosh pit, involuntarily moving your body.

The lyrics burst with an energetic passion, you can just feel the echo of a crowd chanting; “you got me a corner like you wanted/you got me in a corner like you need/and I can’t take my eyes off you”. 

Mariani hints that the track is a sign of what is to come for Vancool; “This new single, I feel, is the closest and most accurate representation of where Vancool is right now – it’s really exciting”.
